As we grieve individually and collectively as a family and community, be reminded that God is here and grieves with us. “The Lord heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power, whose understanding is beyond measure.” Psalm 147:3, 5

Tyler Cobb

Dear First United Methodist Church,

It is with deep deep sadness that I inform you that one of our youth, Tyler Cobb along with his friend Jace Gill, died today, May 16, 2020, in a side-by-side (SxS or UTV) accident. 

My heart hurts just writing this email to you. My prayers are for Shelli, Brian, Clayton and Conner. 

We pray that God upholds us now as we entrust Tyler to God’s eternal care. Assure us God that not even death can separate us from your infinite love and mercy. 

Services are pending. I will inform you as soon as it is available. 

Please keep the Cobb family in your prayers. Please also keep the Gill family in your prayers. 

May the love and peace of God surround these families and yours today and forevermore. 

Thank you God for gifting Tyler to us for 15 years. 

Rev. Sela Finau

Holy Communion


Holy Communion

Dear Friends,

Blessings to you on this Holy Monday!

I want to let you know that we will be celebrating Holy Communion this week online on Maundy Thursday, 4/9, at 7 p.m.  and Easter Sunday, 4/12, at 10:30 a.m. Though we are not able to physically gather, the virtual presence of Christ will be with us. I have ordered and received individual communion wafer and juice sets. You are invited and welcome to receive these individual communion sets beforehand in preparation for our online worship services. I will list below the times you can pick them up. 

If you are unable to pick them up or prefer not to, you are invited to prepare your own elements by getting bread and juice before hand. Something to remember is that you can make your living space into a sanctuary, and to set your table knowing that Jesus will be joining you. 

I will consecrate the individual elements before you pick them up. I will also virtually consecrate elements that you are preparing during our worship services.

I will be the only one handling these communion sets. I ask that you let me know the time that you will come to church and how many communion packets you need. Please either respond to this email or send a text to 817-874-3533. Please also call/text when you arrive. This way, I will have the packets ready to place on a table outside in the SE parking lot by the fellowship hall. Only one family communion set at a time will be placed outside. I will disinfect the table after each family picks up their set. Gluten free elements are also available. Please indicate whether you would like to receive the gluten free elements. 

Times available for pickup are:

Tuesday, 4/7/20, 12-6p.m.
Wednesday, 4/8/20, 12-5p.m. 

For pickup any other times or if you prefer not to get out and would like it delivered, please let me know by responding to this email, or text/call 817-874-3533.

God’s Blessings to you on this Holy Week!

Call to Prayer

To the People of the United Methodist Church,

We join with Pope Francis in calling for prayer Wednesday, March 25, drawing strength from the Annunciation (Luke 1. 26-38), as we are approximately nine months from the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We invite all to pray to God to rid the world of the coronavirus pandemic. And all are urged to pray the Lord’s Prayer at noon intheir own time zones. In the words of Pope Francis, “We wish to respond to the pandemic of the virus with the universality of prayer, of compassion and tenderness.” As we prepare to celebrate the resurrection at Easter, we have sure trust and confidence that God will hear the united prayers of the church across the world.

The Peace of the Lord,

+Ken Carter
